Christmas Greetings

Hello Blogger Friends and a happy Tuesday to you all. Hope you had a relaxing weekend whatever you did and now are into the routine of the week. Now that Monday has passed (lol!!)
My Mother-in-law came to spend Sunday with us and then we had dinner together. I made a great chicken dish using a recipe from Food Network. It was so full of flavor with garlic, lemon, thyme and oregano. Here is a link to the recipe. It's an easy one to make as well.
I served this with baked potatoes. I started them off in the microwave (3 minutes) and then brushed with butter and a little salt wrapped individually in foil and put them in the oven for 35 minutes. They are so good made this way.
Now onto my card for today. This one I made for the sketch challenge #647 on Splitcoaststampers. Diane was our hostess and she gave us a great layout to work into a card.
I decided to make a Christmas card with this layout. I was going to enter this in the Merry Monday Christmas challenge but the challenge was already over for Mistletoe. Oh well, I still have another Christmas card for the stash. I have another piece of this plaid background paper so I am definitely going to make another one.
The background designer paper is from the Stampin'-Up "merry moments" collection. I wanted to use this plaid pattern for 2 years in a row on some Christmas cards and it never happened.

On the longest rectangle panel, I used the CottageCutz holiday greenery die for my mistletoe and cut it in mossy meadow cardstock. I also scattered some dots on this panel.

The Christmas Greetings sentiment is another die from CottageCutz. I cut this in cherry cobbler cardstock. I used the sentiment for panel 5 in the sketch.
Well that's it for me for this post. Until next time........God bless.
